The Kentucky Council of Teachers of English and Language Arts (KCTE) will be holding its 2022 conference on March 18-19 at Berea College.

Inspired by lessons learned from the pandemic, presenters will share how English language arts instructional practices have been adapted and improved and share feedback on new practices. An overview of all sessions can be found on the conference webpage. Up to six hours of professional learning can be completed at the conference.

Keynote speaker Troy Hicks will speak on March 18. Hicks is a professor of English and education at Central Michigan University and focuses his work on the teaching of writing, the intersections of literacy and technology, and professional development. A former middle school teacher, Hicks collaborates with K–12 colleagues and explores how they implement new literacies in their classrooms.

Registration is open and available on the KCTE website. Questions about registration should be emailed to the KCTE Conference Chair Kristie Ennis.
